ABSTRACT

Prevalence of Mental Illness in the United States: Data Sources and Estimates [January 19, 2018]   [open pdf - 632KB]

"This report briefly describes the methodology and selected findings of three large federally funded surveys that provide 'national prevalence estimates of diagnosable mental illness': the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R), the National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement (NCS-A), and the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). This report presents prevalence estimates of 'any' mental illness and 'serious' mental illness based on each survey and ends with a brief discussion of how these prevalence estimates might inform policy discussions."
